Dahi Khalfan Tamim
The Dubai police chief, who has caught the world’s attention for his role in probing the murder Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, is predictably connected to a lot of people who matter.

In October last year, the UAE received the first official visits by two United Nations experts, called special rapporteurs, to find out more about the human-rights situation in the country. Githu Muigai, the rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, met with Tamim during his visit.
The two discussed the tasks of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), and Tamim also briefed Miugai on the Dubai Police’s efforts to promote education on human rights.
The UAE has long held a record of not respecting human rights of workers in the country, and in the recent past, the government has started taking measures to counter the situation.
